Contemporary wood-turned boxes inspired by nature and made from sustainable materials.  Designs range from pure and simple to more ornamented styles with carving and inlaid details.  Temptingly tactile, each box reveals the unique natural beauty of the wood and is a little work of art to treasure.  Workshop viewings by appointment.

Plant Matter

I am inspired by the common plants which grow around me and, using traditional skills, make work which brings them into a present day conversation; helping us to revalue both these skills and to see the plants themselves in a new way.  I also make books to document specific projects.

Love and Music Will Endure and No Safe Anchorage

I write historical novels set in the nineteenth century Highlands.  My first book, 'Love and Music Will Endure', was published in 2013.  The second one, 'No Safe Anchorage' will be launched in October 2017.  Currently, I'm working on stories for children.  I'm available to give workshops about writing and research.
